The gripping and explosive tale of one family living and learning together on the South Side of Chicago in the 1950s, A Raisin in the Sun was the first authentic voice of an African American playwright to hit the Broadway stage. In this award-winning drama, the Younger family searches for a way to grab their piece of the dream, even in the face of prejudice and discrimination. Since the play's premiere 50 years ago, Lorraine Hansberry's towering masterpiece has moved audiences and broken down barriers wherever it has played.
